GUWAHATI, Dec 7 - A minor Adivasi girl from Udalguri, who was trafficked and sold three times by different traffickers in Delhi during the last three years, is being brought to Guwahati after being rescued and produced before the Child Welfare Committee in New Delhi.
Police, in association with the child rights organisation Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) has rescued eight minors in the past one week from various locations in Delhi.
A team of the Assam Police�s anti-trafficking unit, led by Sub-Inspector R Bora, which was camping in New Delhi, also arrested one of the traffickers � Sanju Das � who also hails from Udalguri and was operating on behalf of the Sree Sai placement agency.
According to Bachpan Bachao Andolan that took active part in the rescue operation in the wee hours of Saturday, the girl was tortured by her employees and was poorly paid.
�The victim was trafficked three years back and was sold to different persons, including an Assamese family, by three traffickers,� Rakesh Senger of BBA said.
Senger said that as an FIR has been lodged with the Udalguri police, all the accused, including the employers of the victim, would have to appear in the local court at Udalguri.
�This is a case in which the best way of approaching the police was adopted. Since the poor family had lodged a complaint with the local police first, the accused will now have to appear before the local court, unlike the cases in which victims had to go to Delhi to appear before the court,� Senger said. Police sources, meanwhile, said the accused, including the employers based in Delhi, will be booked under various Sections of the IPC, besides the Child Labour Act and the Juvenile Justice Act.
